Political Organizations Can Now File Their Taxes with Ease



ExpressTaxExempt has a new form that’s specifically designed and ready to be filed by political organizations. Form 1120-POL is typically filed by political organizations and certain tax-exempt organizations with taxable income remaining after the $100 special deduction has been taken for the taxable year.


Form 1120-POL is due annually on the 15th day of the fourth month following the organization’s tax year end date.

For organizations that operate on a calendar tax year (January 1 to December 31), the due date is April 15 each year.


To e-file Form 1120-POL, you’ll need some information about the organization such as its tax year beginning and end dates as well as the organization name, employer identification number (EIN), and address. Financial details including income, deductions, and tax data will also be needed once you navigate through the e-filing process. Once this information has been submitted, an officer of the organization must sign Form 1120-POL before e-filing it with the IRS.


It is extremely important for political organizations to file this form. Failing to file or filing late can result in the group incurring penalties from the IRS. Organizations that fail to file are required to pay an additional fine equal to 5% of the tax due for each month the return is late, with a maximum of 25% of the total tax due. Form 1120-POL returns that are filed more than 60 days late will have to pay the remaining tax due or $135, whichever is smaller.


ExpressTaxExempt eliminates the hassle of a long filing process by providing Form 1120-POL with a very simplistic process that can be completed in five easy steps:

1) Create Your Account
  • Enter your email address, password, and some basic identifying information to create your free account and start filing.

3) Enter Organization Information
  • Here, you’ll enter your basic organization information needed to file Form 1120-POL. This information includes your organization name, EIN, and address. This information must match what’s on the IRS’s records.
